Goth-Friendly Canisters for Kitchen Storage

My kitchen gets a lot of use - I have four kids and throw lots of parties for friends and family. I try to keep my counters clear, but there are just some things I use every single day and can't really quite bring myself to put away in cupboards. So today I'm looking around seeing how I could goth up my kitchen a bit and store things more attractively on my counters.

I'm a sucker for damask, especially black and white, so I'm tempted by these Drake Designs ceramic canisters. They're also available on eBay, where they are a bit pricier.

I initially thought I liked these onyx canisters, but now I think they're a bit too over the top and stuffy.

Can I resist black and white stripes? I love the cute shape of these, too.
